Write mysteries using complete lesson plans include pre-writing, brainstorming, responding to a "mystery" picture, following the writing process using a worksheet form, and sharing the piece-in-progress with other students for suggestions. To complete this creative writing activity, students edit and present their final mystery story. Links on the page lead to other lesson plans for approaching the study of mysteries, learning its vocabulary, and interesting students in writing and reading mysteries.

In the Classroom

Use this site when preparing students to enter a writing contest such as the national Scholastic Art and Writing competition or simply as a way to teach about story structure, story mapping, and writing. You can even create your own "Flash" mysteries based on pictures students take with a digital camera. Not enough time or cameras for students to take pictures? You can supply a collection from which they may choose a picture. Create and share their final products on a class wiki along with the photos.
